Deadline to register to vote – don’t forget!

There are just days left for people to register to vote in this year’s local elections.

Voters in Blackburn with Darwen have been urged to register in time for this year’s elections.

Residents will go to the polls on May 4 to cast their ballots to elect councillors for Blackburn with Darwen Council.

The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 17.

The deadline for receiving new postal vote and proxy vote applications is one day later, at 5pm on Wednesday, April 18th.

This is also the deadline to change existing postal or proxy votes.

Because there have been boundary changes to the wards, the number of ward councillors is due to go from 64 to 51 this year, and all are up for election.

If you are already registered to vote and plan to vote in person at a polling station, there is no need to re-register.
